Held on Tuesday, December 4, 2018 at Pratt Institute, this panel discussion featured artist-archivists Antonia Perez, Julia Rooney, and Rose Nestler in conversation with Metropolitan Museum of Art Sculpture Conservator Kendra Roth. The program explored each artist’s own work, and how the artist’s voice can play a role in shaping their legacy.

This event was part of the fourth season of our on-going CALL/VoCA Talks series, hosted in partnership with the Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) Program. These programs aim to highlight the innovative CALL initiative while also underscoring the crucial need for dialogue with artists around the production, presentation, and preservation of their work.
